About Kate Andrews

Full Time Islanders, my family has lived on the Island for generations.

We love how all ages can enjoy the beauty and splendor of Acadia.

Kate Andrews purchased this apartment in 1996

Why Kate Andrews chose Seal Harbor

This bungalow is located just a mile from my great grandparents home in Seal Harbor. Cousins grew up all around us.

What makes this apartment unique

We love our little home because it is close to everything but also secluded in the magic little village of Seal Harbor.

Beautifully maintained, excellent location, kind hosts

  • 5 of 5

This place was so gorgeously decorated, very clean (spotless!), and the hosts, Kate and Blake, thought of every possible need (including cookies mid-week!). We were so grateful for the location in Seal Harbor - the proximity to the park was key for our hiking, biking and drives into Acadia. The beds were very comfortable and we couldn’t have been happier overall. We highly recommend a stay at the Blue Lobster.

Perfect location and property

  • 5 of 5

The property owners were very helpful and generous. The place was well stocked and they provided more supplies than normally provided. The rental was adorable and very clean. I would definitely rent again if ever back to MDI.

Charming Flat in Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay. New, private, beautifully decorated flat, with every detail attended to by the welcoming hosts. Location could not be better - very quiet, a block from Seal Harbor Beach, walking distance to park entrance, and a short drive to Bar Harbor.
